    Melanie's tips...
    For the best muffins, mix ingredients quickly (without over mixing) and bake immediately! You can substitute the blueberries for your favourite fresh fruit like blackberries, mashed bananas, raspberries, chopped apple or pear.

    1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
    2. Use a pastry brush to grease the muffin tin with a little melted butter.
    3. Combine the lemon/orange zest, sugar, butter, milk and eggs in a bowl.
    4. Sift both types of flour and the baking powder into a bowl.
    5. Pour the milk mixture and blueberries onto the flour and stir with a wooden spoon until it's combined (try not to over mix).
    6. Spoon the mix into your muffin tin and bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes.
    7. When they are cooked, let the muffins cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.

    Serve straight away, slightly warm for maximum eating pleasure and enjoy!
